The first thing that one should know and clearly understand about Islam is what the word "Islam" itself means. The religion of Islam is not named after a person as in the case of Christianity which was named after Jesus Christ, Buddhism after Gotama Buddha, Confucianism after Confucius, and Marxism after Karl Marx. Nor was it named after a tribe like Judaism after the tribe of Judah and Hinduism after the Hindus. Islam is the true religion of "Allah" and as such, its name represents the central principle of Allah's "God's" religion; the total submission to the will of Allah "God". The Arabic word "Islam" means the submission or surrender of one's will to the only true god worthy of worship "Allah" and anyone who does so is termed a "Muslim", The word also implies "peace" which is the natural consequence of total submission to the will of Allah. Hence, it was not a new religion brought by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) I in Arabia in the seventh century, but only the true religion of Allah re-expressed in its final form.Islam is the religion which was given to Adam, the first man and the first prophet of Allah, and it was the religion of all the prophets sent by Allah to mankind. The name of God's religion lslam was not decided upon by later generations of man. It was chosen by Allah Himself and clearly mentioned in His final revelation to man. In the final book of divine revelation, the Qur'aan, Allah states the following:"This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion". (Soorah Al-Maa'idah 5:3)"If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah (God) never will It be accepted of Him" (Soorah Aal'imraan 3:85)"Abraham was not a Jew nor Christian; but an upright Muslim." (Soorah Aal'imraan 3:67)Nowhere in the Bible will you find Allah saying to Prophet Moses' people or their descendants that their religion is Judaism, nor to the followers of Christ that their religion is Christianity. In fact, Christ was not even his name, nor was it Jesus! The name "Christ" comes from the Greek word Christos which means the annointed. That is, Christ is a Greek translation of the Hebrew title "Messiah". The name "Jesus" on the other hand, is a latinized version of the Hebrew name Esau.

For simplicity's sake, I will however continue to refer to Prophet Esau (PBUH) as Jesus. As for his religion, it was what he called his followers to. Like the prophets before him, he called the people to surrender their will to the will of Allah; (which is Islam) and he warned them to stay away from the false gods of human imagination.

Faith from U.S.A.
United States

Hi, braveheart 2010,  I read this blog as you requested.


I took religion in highschool and had to attend chapel every Wednesday, and took religious intructions for a year and a half as an adult, but I have never heard this information from the Catholic Convent School, nor the Roman Catholic church led by the deacon for RCIA
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.

I do not know anything about Islam except for a book written that I own that explains a bit about its practices, ethics, and beliefs, including the primary differences between Christianity and Islam.

I like this man but he seems to get upset with me but I do not mean to upset him..."on my manners", regarding communicating with him...but he told me he does not see himself marrying anyone who is not believing exactly like he does (and he is a Muslim).  Well, I know Christ is REAL.  No one can tell me any differently.

I will go to my deathbed to that allegiance in my faith (or they who hate me for it can kill or torture me because of it I will not move or change from it).

I am open to a productive dialogue with Muslims.  As I have known that many are very good (the ones living in America that I have known personally as friends, neighbors, and as associates) and through Ebaby, too.

Al salam Alikum,

i'm proud to comment on your great blog and hope everybody on this site read it and write comment for benefit of all of us.

ALLAH say in holy quraan:"إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِندَ اللَّهِ الْإِسْلَامُ Surely the (true) religion with Allah is Islam" that's the true which all ppl in different places and at different times must know.and let me add some of quraan verses that show that the islam massage for all ppl in the world.

"أُولَـٰئِكَ الَّذِينَ هَدَى اللَّهُ ۖ فَبِهُدَاهُمُ اقْتَدِهْ ۗ قُل لَّا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ أَجْرًا ۖ إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكْرَىٰ لِلْعَالَمِينَ  These are they whom Allah guided, therefore follow their guidance. Say: I do not ask you for any reward for it; it is nothing but a reminder to the nations" and "وَمَا تَسْأَلُهُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ ۚ إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكْرٌ لِّلْعَالَمِينَ 
 And you do not ask them for a reward for this; it is nothing but a reminder for all mankind." " وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ And We have not sent you but as a mercy to the worlds." "إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكْرٌ لِّلْعَالَمِينَ  It is nothing but a reminder to the nations" "وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا كَافَّةً لِّلنَّاسِ بَشِيرًا وَنَذِيرًا وَلَـٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ  And We have not sent you but to all the men as a bearer of good news and as a warner, but most men do not know. "
